Diversity Colloquium: "Child Maltreatment, Race, & Internalizing Problems: Evidence of a Mental Health Paradox?"

Tuesday, March 20, 2018 - 7:00 pm

Join Ashleigh Kysar-Moon for a discussion on diversity, child maltreatment and mental health. Health disparities scholars describe the existence of a mental health paradox; specifically, when black adults have higher levels of stress exposure compared to whites, yet have better mental health outcomes. Whether such a paradox exists among black youth with a history of maltreatment is unclear. Kysar-Moon will also discuss the role psychosocial resources play in post-hoc analyses for better mental health.
